Geneseo Summer Concert Series – Bob’s Brother’s Band @ Geneseo Village Park
Jun 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Eleventh Annual Geneseo Summer Concert Series is being presented to provide musical entertainment to the Geneseo Community at no cost to those attending. We are building on the success of past seasons, which contributed to the lifestyle of our community, as well as bringing people to our downtown area during a traditionally quiet time of the year. The series will begin on Friday June 21st, 2019 in the Village Park from 7 – 9 PM. The remaining concerts will be on consecutive Fridays, with the final concert on August 30th. Each performance will be from 7-9 PM in the Village Park. Food & Drinks from the Café Shiloh are available in the Park. New restrooms in the park are open.

Bob’s Brother’s Band started inconspicuously in August of 2004. While planning for the 2004 Avon Corn Festival, someone mentioned that Bob’s brother had a band that could fill one of the slots at the festival. That left it up to John Barrett (Bob’s brother) to gather some musicians and play at the festival. John doesn’t let little things like not actually having a band prevent him from taking the gig. John loves to play! The inaugural gig included John, Paul, Don, and Dave, with Kyle Leonard on guitar and vocals, and Jared Hobbs on drums. Since that time the band has been having a great time entertaining crowds with their own flavor of classic rock and soul. In addition to having a great time playing music, the band is also involved in a variety of community service efforts.

While songs like “Giddy Up” carry a jug band sensibility of the 60’s, Bunce isn’t afraid to shove aside the gentle mandolins for some Alman Brothers southern blues guitar. It’s a mission statement when Bunce sings, “Wide open spaces get wider each day.” Bunce has a good woman. ” She trims my beard and keeps my tractor clean.” But times are otherwise tough in his rural landscape. ” We ate yesterdays lunch, a couple weeks ago,” he moans. At lest he has the distraction of characters prone to attention getting antics : “Get off the table Mable, you ain’t the reason that we’re here.”

Miller and The Other Sinners – David Miller grew up mostly in the country, south of Buffalo, NY, in Allegany County. At a very young age he began singing in church, surrounded by gospel music, which has impacted his writing to this day. Growing up through the 70’s and 80’s, he was exposed to all different styles of music, learning piano, sax and eventually, guitar. Blues, R&B and soul music always inspired him though he never embraced those forms until much later in life. He was composing from a very early age and was recording his own church albums at the age of 12.
